Resident • 2011 Not Recommended
I rented a one-bedroom furnished apartment from a private owner for four months last year. For what I got, the rent was definitely too high. The building is old but generally well-maintained. There are few amenities--laundry room in the basement and a small outdoor pool. The apartment itself was spacious and sunny, but the heating/air conditioning was uneven (so either too cool or too warm). The kitchen and bathroom were antiquated and far too small for contemporary living. The property management is very absent. A person died on my floor and was only discovered after a few weeks. By then, the odor was intolerable! This is an old building and the apartments are not sufficiently insulated for noise. I heard entire conversations from the tenants one floor up. This is not a good situation at all. In the end, it was the reason I chose to move. For me, the best part of living here was the location. The residential neighborhood across the street is very nice. There is a nearby park with a great walking/running trail that I used frequently. There is a bus stop immediately across the street, which makes for a quick ride to either the Ballston or Clarendon stations.
